The Circuit Playground Express Base Kit is now available through 4-H! @4H

We are happy to announce that the Circuit Playground Express Base Kit can now be found at 4-H!  Check it out here!

If you aren’t familiar with 4-H and their programs, check out some of ways they are helping to inspire and engage kids and teens interested in science and technology.

The Circuit Playground Express Base kit can be used to make a number of exciting projects (check out our learn guide section here).We are always working up new ways to use this kit, and one project we thought our friends at 4-H would find super useful is our Soil Moisture Sensor with Circuit Playground Express and Makecode learn guide. With the addition of a few Small Alligator clips, all parts used in this project are found in The Circuit Playground Express Base Kit. In a few easy steps you’ll have yourself a handy soil moisture sensor that’ll let you know when to water your plants!

The Circuit Playground Express Base Kit is just some of the great stuff sold on the 4-H website. Head over to check it out along with some other great products and resources.


Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, or even use Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for MakeCode, CircuitPython, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
